Power Rangers Goseiger Adaptation to Use Megaranger Scripts?
As many of you may know, Saban has already claimed copyrights to the titles "Power Rangers Megaforce" and "Power Rangers Ultra Megaforce." Both of them are rather, generic and uncreative titles. However, there are rumors going around that the upcoming Goseiger adaptation will be using a video game motif, and specifically Megaranger scripts. These rumors have come from Chris Funaro, a.k.a. Cmdr Crayfish, a long time Power Rangers fan and insider. Generally, Funaro is a reliable source. Here's what he said initially on rangercrew:
"My honest gut-instinct? We're gonna get Goseiger adapted heavily filtered through Megaranger after being told the angel theme was unusable. Recycling Mega scripts instead of Goseiger."
Furthermore, there's been leaked scripts of the main characters being high school students, which would match the Megaranger main cast. The leaked scripts can be downloaded below:

This would make sense of the title having the word "mega," as lame as it is. Discarding the angel motif isn't surprising, but instead of coming up with something original they've decide to disguise it by making a carbon-copy of an older Sentai. If they intended to outright copy Megaranger's scripts Saban would be spending a lot of money to make new footage. In particular with Jaden Sentai Nejiranger, whom were used as the Psycho Rangers during In Space and have absolutely no equivalent in Goseiger. Honestly, a video game themed Power Rangers series would be interesting, but the least they can do is make up their own friggen script.
